SHOW ME THE RECORDS: Missouri counties' turkey harvest numbers 2012

Monday, March 4, 2013 | 9:29 a.m. CST

COLUMBIA — Most government records are open to the public at no charge. These records give citizens the opportunity to find out what’s going on, how their elected officials are spending tax dollars, how the various departments within a governmental entity work and other valuable information needed to make strong decisions for the future. Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public.

For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to http://columbiamissourian.com/records.

The Records: The Missouri Department of Conservation's data on turkey harvest in each Missouri county. Numbers are updated three to four times per hour. 

Why you'd want them: The data provides updated turkey harvest numbers in each county and an interactive map that shows which counties have the highest and lowest harvest numbers.

Where you get the records: Go to the department's website at http://mdc.mo.gov/, scroll down to the middle page, and find MDC Widgets on the right. Click "Fall Turkey Numbers" to see the thermo map. Move the arrow over the map to view statistics for each county.

How much it will cost: The information is free.
